How happy were we to have Jerry back?
My first set of shows after getting out of the Army.
Couldn't have been happier the Dead were touring again.
love the "Hand Jive"

My First Oakland Show
Damn good show. Living in Houston at the time, it was great to finally get out west. Caught the last two of the three-night "comback" shows after Garcia's 5 day "Jerry sleep" coma. Had a rip-roar'n good time.
Joanie and PSCotton. Your tape feeds to Mr. Miller are invaluable and much appreciated. Thanks for all the effort, time, and hassles. Sorry if it feels as if the chicken came before the egg at times in the reviews on archive. Thanks.

I would say the folks who taped the show are just as important as the fella who mastered the tapes to digital.

Good Sound, decent set list, and really doesn't matter who is on keyboards to review the show.
